Description

This northeast facing rock on a hillside above the Desert Queen Wash is easily identified by the near vertical gully that splits the main formation in half. Currently, All Loin (5.10c - 1 star) and Vector (5.11c - classic) are the only established routes and ascend cracks.

Getting There

One approach to Vector Rock is to hike north from the Split Rock parking area towards the Desert Queen Wash. Once the Bond Boulders have been reached it is best to remain above the wash that drains into the Desert Queen Wash and veer northwest over undulating terrain. Vector Rock is easily seen from this point but not easily accessed because of the large boulders and vegetation encountered along the way. The distance from the Bond Boulders to Vector Rock is approx. 1/2 mile.
